Sake Invades Union Square

Union Sq Wines & Spirits doesn’t showcase sake very often, but when they do, it’s a doosie! I recently attended their late summer 2009 “Sake Brewer’s Showcase”. It a jam packed collection of the best sake from Five different importers:

  • World Sake Imports
  • Mutual Trading Company
  • Prestige Sake
  • SENA Niigata Sake
  • ASPEC Akita Sake

The thing that impressed me more than anything was the size of the crowd. I wasn’t really prepared for the throngs of sake lovers that showed up to sample the nihonshu. Crowds were sometimes 5 people deep to get a sip. See the notes in this slideshow for more info on the sake tasting at Union Sq Wines & Spirits.
